Triple Divide

Triple Divide is the powerful, acclaimed product of an 18-month investigation by Public Herald into the negative impacts from fracking in Pennsylvania; and how those impactsa are handled by regulators and industry. The film is co-narrated by actor Mark Ruffalo, and is the result of an 18-month investigation into negative impacts from fracking in Pennsylvania since 2008 and how those impacts are handled by regulators and industry.

Public Herald was awarded a $35K grant from the Investigative News Network with support from the Knight Foundation to undertake a screening and discussion tour of its investigative documentary ‘Triple Divide’ through several key areas where hydrofracking is proposed across the US – Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, New Mexico, California, Michigan and key areas in between where onshore unconventional oil and gas development via fracking is being planned or is in initial stages.

This page is dedicated to cataloguing the stories about Triple Divide and its U.S. tour in 2014. You can follow Public Herald on twitter @PublicHerald to receive daily updates.
